Hi Konrad,

I just discovered something which I hope is relevant - I can see the
escape sequences when I pipe or redirect hoorex output anywhere. That
breaks a use case described in the man page - not good - so I've
committed a fix for this situation (by first testing whether output
device is a tty).

Is your case similar to that (a script piping or redirecting hoorex
output somewhere)? If so, the attached patch should fix it. Could you
test it (against 0.6.4) if you have time?
